Tough talk from Australian army chief on sex scandal

The chief of the Australian army has vowed to be “ruthless” in ridding its ranks of soldiers who degrade and mistreat women.

In a brutally candid three-minute message on YouTube June 13, Lt. Gen. David Morrison addressed the alleged online circulation of “highly inappropriate material demeaning women” by a group of army officers.

“Those who think that it is OK to behave in a way that demeans or exploits their colleagues have no place in this army,” Morrison said matter-of-factly.

“If that does not suit you, then get out.”

    LTG Morrison,

    Good on you sir. We yanks need to be ruthless on offenders also, and mean it.

    As per usual, the Australian Army shows the other English speaking nations what it means to be resolute, especially those girly-girls “leading” the U.S. Air Force. (MSgt, USAF Ret)
